Gimp registry (Inkscape also has one) is a wealth of great filters, brushes and scripts. This is a really cool script that turns normal photo portraits into something you would see on classic National Geographic or those banners of aid organizations with dramatic shots of mothers holding babies.

Malaysian googlers boleh
Google+ adoption rates in some countries exceed 1/3 of all Internet users.

According to a new report by GlobalWebIndex, adoption rates of Google+ in many countries exceeds one-third of the total population of Internet users in those countries.

For example, the biggest adopters of Google+ are Vietnam (42%), Thailand (39%), India (38%), Saudi Arabia (38%), Indonesia (37%), Malaysia (35%) and the Philippines (34%).

These are astronomical, historically unprecedented rates of adoption for any Internet-based service after only a year or so of existence.

Many other countries are seeing adoption rates already of one quarter or more of the Internet-using population, including some of the world's largest-population countries, such as Mexico (32%), Argentina (32%), Taiwan (30%), Turkey (29%), Brazil (28%), China (25%), Russia (25%), Poland (25%) and others.

Contrast this with the United States, where the adoption rate is only 6%. France, the UK, Germany and Japan have similar, one-digit rates of adoption so far.

The governing dynamic appears to be that countries with gluts of country- and language-specific social services are slower to adopt because they're suffering from social networking fatigue already, and haven't yet discovered that replacing those services with Google+ is the solution.

Also: This pattern is vaguely similar to adoption rates of SMS, where the countries above adopted it very quickly, but Americans lagged behind.

The bottom line: At current adoption rates, Google+ is very quickly becoming the world's gathering place.

If you want to talk to your high school friends, use Facebook. If you want to talk to the world, Google+ is the place to be.
